Jungle Bird F1Cookbook

Oooh another favorite cocktail! This is a great time in the F1 Calendar when so many favorites come up all in a row! 

This is yet another cocktail where it is considered "Malaysian" as it was invented there (yet again in a hotel bar similar to the Singapore Sling) but is rarely actually imbibed in its country of origin. I still would like to give credit where credit is due and thank Malaysia and the Kuala Lumpur Hilton.
